Uncle Dick's Workshop - Friday 14
Every Friday at 10:00AM - we will be bringing you the sort of cutting-edge expertise that leaves ragged bits and sore fingers - Uncle Dick's Workshop. The advice is free - free from good sense in most instances....It really cranks up around the first of April.
Q: Why do you keep film in the fridge at your shop?
A: We’re too cheap to buy ice cube trays.
Q: What is the official weight limit for camera bags in overhead lockers on passenger aircraft?
A: If you can lift it over your head without bursting blood vessels in your eye, you can stow it in the locker. If it crashes through the fuselage to the tarmac below it is Boeing’s fault, not yours.
Q: Is my photographic equipment safe when stowed in the hold of an aircraft?
A: See that little wagon they use to bring it out to the plane? It used to be a bomb trolley. Guess what happens when the doors of the compartment open....
Q: If I scan my negatives at a higher resolution will it make my images more detailed?
A: Yes. You will be able to see the dust, scratches, and fingerprints with startling clarity.
Q: Will I get good star trail images if I use my macro lens?
A: Only if you are prepared to buy a fairly long ladder.
